Add to Your Favourites

Formed in 1999, Klez are Chris Haigh (fiddle), Philip Clouts (piano/accordion) and Alex Keen (double bass). They are all experienced professional musicians with a wide experience of playing folk and ethnic music to jazz and swing.

Fresh Approach

Klez take a fresh and invigorating approach to Jewish traditional music, borrowing from many styles to make it as interesting, lively and enjoyable as possible.They perform for both private functions (weddings, parties, bar and bat mitzvahs) and public performances (theatres, arts centres, festivals and so on).

If required the band can be augmented by other instruments (clarinet, drums, guitar), a singer (Jewish, jazz and covers) and a caller to lead Jewish dancing. The band can provide music for any or all of the celebration- ceremony, reception, dinner and dancing.

Unique Versatility

Klez are unique in being able to offer Jewish/Scottish and Jewish/Irish wedding music and dancing. If requested we can combine Jewish dancing and music with Scottish or Irish Ceilidh music, and we have a caller who can lead dances in both styles. We are also happy to mix in other genres of music- French, Latin, East European, Gypsy, jazz, light classical and so on.
